I made these pens and boxes for my dad, step-dad, brother, and the one with-out an initialed medallion was for my daughter-n-law’s dad. The first three boxes were made from cocobolo, bubinga, and bubinga w/leopardwood. The medallions are camphor burl ,except for the cocobolo box which has a bubinga medallion. the letters are ebony,( the letters in the cocobolo box are sycamore) which I cut with a jewelers saw.The pens are cocobolo. The other box is made from cherry with a piece of crotch walnut inlayed in the top, and ebony stringing framing it. The pen is figured walnut from the root section of the tree.
